"Good luck Shikamaru."
"Yeah, good luck Shikamaru-kun."
I jumped into the arena and Gaara appeared in front of me.
"I'm going to kill you!"
"Good luck with that."
"Are you two ready?"
I tried to capture Gaara's shadow but I got stopped by his sand. Gaara also tried to capture me with his sand, but I managed to jump out of the way.
'I need him to use all his sand before I can finish this.'
Mud appeared underneath his feet, making him fall down. I used all my speed and kicked him to the side of his head. He flew against a wall but he got cushioned by his sand.
"Is that all you've got? I expected more from you, but I guess I shouldn't have expected much from a weakling."
He took out more sand and sent it my way.
I appeared behind him. I sent a kick to his head, but it got stopped by his sand.
"If it wasn't for the sand protecting you, you'd already been dead."
This time I appeared underneath him. I tried to give him an uppercut but I got stopped by his sand again. I jumped back.
"If you keep holding back I will just kill you sooner or later."
"Fine, I will just end it now!"
Gaara took all of his sand from his gourd.
'Finally. Wait what is he doing?'
Sand started to rise up from the ground.
'Is he making new sand? This is bad!'
A huge wave of sand was coming my way.
'This better work.'
Our jutsus clashed and an explosion happened. The entire arena was full of smoke. I could just barely see that his sand turned to glass so I started doing hand seals before the smoke cleared.
A powerful stream of fire came out of my mouth.
The glass shattered and the fire stream hit him head-on. He got send flying into the wall
Before he could do anything I captured him.
I used the shadows to pierce his arms and legs against the wall.
"AAAHH, you bastard."
Before I could finish it someone appeared between us. It is the Kazekage.
"Your strength is unexpected, but I can' t have you ruining my plans."
He broke my jutsu.
"Now that the plan has started, I won't need this anymore."
In a puff of smoke, someone else appeared.
'A transformation jutsu!'
"Orochimaru!" The Hokage yelled
"Long time no see old man."
"Long time no see old man."
I appeared next to Orochimaru.
"What did you come here for, little brat?"
"I don't want a pedo like you to be so close to my friend."
"Huh, do you really think I care about things like that."
"I know that you want Sasuke's body and that makes you a pedo."
"I don't need to explain anything to you. Kabuto start the attack!"
After waiting for 30 seconds nothing happened.
"Haha, do you really think he I would let you do as you like. I have already taken out Kabuto."
An explosion happened at one of the walls and a giant snake appeared.
I summoned 10.000 clones with the help of Kurama.
I sent 9.500 into the village to protect the villagers and 500 hundred went to help the audience.
"Your chakra reserves are really enormous."
"Don't tell me you want to take my body now."
He has a creepy smile on his face.
Jiraiya and the Hokage appeared beside me. I could see that Jiraiya was about to attack.
"Don't attack him."
"We need to make sure that the village is safe. My clones are taking care of the villagers so you should go and take out that snake."
"And who will take on this bastard."
"Let the Hokage take care of him. I know the old man has what it takes to take him out."
"He is right Jiraiya. Go and take out that snake. The village is the most important right now."
He looked at us one last time before he disappeared.
"Ey old man, don't expect any help from me. I will have my own battle to fight."
"Don't worry I won't need your help."
"Shikamaru after you've restored you're chakra, take Hinata and back up Jiraiya."
"What a drag. Be careful out."
He also disappeared.
"Well, have fun you two."
I went after Gaara who escaped after Orochimaru appeared. I could easily sense his chakra and I followed it outside the village.
I arrived at a big clearing.
"You have found a nice place."
"Let's begin already."
He transformed into Shukaku.
He fell asleep.
"Hahahahahahaha, I'm finally free."
I took out a kunai and drew blood from my finger.
A huge cloud of smoke appeared. After the smoke cleared you could see a huge toad with a huge sword and I am standing on his head.
He looked at Shukaku.
"What have you gotten yourself into, Naruto?"
"Just a friendly fight."
"Funny joke, but I don' t feel like fighting today."
"To think you would abandon me in my time of need."
"Do you really think you can beat me because you summoned a frog?"
"What did you say!? Ey Naruto, this just became personal so I will help you kill him!"
"That's the spirit."
He took out his sword and jumped really fast at Shukaku. With a swing of his sword, he was able to cut off one of Shukakus arms.
"Argh, you bastard."
He was able to regen his arm back.
He opened his mouth and punched on his stomach multiple times. Multiple big air bullets came flying at the Chief Toad, but he easily avoided them.
"Ey chief, let's do that jutsu you thought me."
I visited mount mybokuto a couple of times to learn how to cooperate with the chief and other toads. I also got to meet his two sons, Gamakichi and Gamatatsu.
"Alright get ready."
He shot out a lot of oil and I supplied it with fire. A huge fire bullet hit Shukaku that made him fly back.
"This is the second time today that you have been sent flying. Are you sure that you're even a Tailed Beast?"
